In Los Angeles, Nikki is homeless, car-less and closing in on 30, but he's amoral, good-looking, and adept in the sack, moving from one wealthy woman of 35 or 40 to another, a kept boy-toy. His newest gig, with Samantha, an attorney whose house overlooks L.A., is sweet, although it's unclear how long she'll put up with him. Then Nikki meets Heather, a waitress. Is the player being played, or might this be love? What will Nikki discover? Written by
The party scene very early in the movie that introduces Anne Heche is an impressively orchestrated long take (no cuts) lasting more than three and a half minutes. See more »
My whole life it was obvious I was going to end up in this city. I don't want to be arrogant here, but I'm an incredibly attractive man. I can't help it, I don't try to be, I just am. When I was a kid my mother's best friend used to tell me that I was gonna be a little heart breaker. Turns out she was right.

Spread is no fairy tale or "van halen video" Spread is about people struggling to get where they want to be by unconventional methods and not quite getting there.
Ashton Kutcher costars with the beautiful Margarita Levieva. He plays a young Hollywood wannabe, Nikki. He appears put together, handsome, rich and successful due to his wardrobe, the women he sees, and the houses he occupies; unbeknownst to everyone he encounters Nikki is poor and homeless. Nikki makes his living by sleeping with rich women; he then becomes their lovely charity case. The women find themselves attached to him and want him as their own. Nikki is perfectly fine with the situation until he meets Heather (Levieva). She, like him, makes her living by targeting rich men. The two are attracted to each other and begin an unconventional relationship. Things are going well until Nikki wants Heather all to himself. Will the two gigolo types be able to have a real functional relationship?
Spread was decent. It wasn't like anything else I have seen which made it fascinating. The plot was intriguing. While watching the film I became more and more disappointed as time went on. There wasn't much development or room for this movie to progress. I felt as though it were stuck in a bit of a rut.
I was both surprised and pleased by the ending. Not every relationship ends with a happy ending. Sometimes love isn't enough. Spread proves that and shows that to us through common situations with a slight twist from reality.
